Precautions Being Taken

  • All assisted living and independent living dining venues will be closed no later than Wednesday, March 25th; current dining schedules that promote social distancing will remain in place until you are further notified.
  • Independent Living residents may schedule a time to pick up their meal.  Signature Lifestyle participants will be provided room service in your individual apartment.
  • All group activities are cancelled.
  • Residents leaving and returning to the community are strongly discouraged.  Seniors with multiple health conditions are at highest risk for serious complications from COVID 19.
  • Staff will make a concerted effort to spend social time with residents that are not venturing out of their apartment.  These activities may include conversations, games, assisting resident to video chat with family or friends and creating One Day videos to send out to family or friends.  Amazon echo is a great technology source to stay connected which, if desired, you can have shipped directly to the community and we can help set up.
  • Residents may venture out of their apartments if they are not exhibiting signs of illness.
  • Informal resident groups must be limited to 10 or less residents and maintain social distancing of 6 feet.
  • Community transportation to medically necessary appointments must be approved by management for all care levels, including independent living.
  • All residents at all communities should remain in the community other than for medically necessary appointments.
  • Residents needing supplies should contact the concierge for assistance with online ordering if needed.  HEB, Wal-Mart, Amazon and many others deliver direct to the community so there is no need for outside shopping.  Your concierge can provide local resources.
